We’re Making a Difference

Thanks for the court system

I can fight myself all I want, but I did pick up some good ideas listening to and doing these classes. At first, I just wanted to get them done and the courts can get off my back but after 3 weeks in I was like ok I stopped fighting my self n gave in. There still a lot going on in my life, but I will use these skills that Miss Deb n Miss Laura gave me to go ahead. I can’t wait to move into my new apartment when I finally get it, hang up my achievement award for finishing something.

A blessing in disguise

This program is so truly amazing. I knew the first class I took this was the program I have been needing for so long. I have since graduated the Women Of Courage program and they still continue to bless me and follow me on my journey. I believe all women deserve to experience this program I have become closer to God and have learned to love myself and now know I have a purpose in life. I have changed my life for the better and continue to grow everyday thank you God for this program and thank you Laura Sams for all you do your such a blessing and inspiration.

I’m so thankful to this woman

A year ago I was down and out with no place to turn. Then I found Laura. She has shown me the way to God and has help in more ways then one. I don’t know where my life would have taken if it wasn’t for this woman. The place is a blessing.

I can’t say enough good

I can’t say enough good things about Miss Laura. If it wasn’t for the encouragement and support from her I wouldn’t have been able to remove myself from a very toxic relationship. She is an Angel on Earth! Thank you so much 💕.

From being homeless living on the streets to helping me find a warm and safe place to stay to helping me get a job (which I still work at 1 yr. And 4 months later). I can never repay her for all that she has done for me. All I can do is keep making her proud!! I will always be truly grateful for you Laura a.ka Ma!! Love you!!

Special Thank You

To Mike and Deb Biss for helping us get food to the poor.  We couldn't do this without your help!

RAM Ministries would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Stark Community Foundation for approving our grant request in the amount of $5,000 from the Women’s Fund. This grant is for the needs of the women enrolled in our Women of Courage program in order to help them move forward in their lives until they can find a job. The money is for needs such as: bus passes, cooking supplies for cooking classes, money for birth certificates, IDs, driver’s license, food, special clothing or shoes required for jobs, celebration of their victories and for their graduation gift of a crockpot or food processor. We are very excited and grateful to be able to better serve the women that come through our program.
